Hillary Clinton says the FBI should release all the information that it has
by Nathan'ette Burdine: October 29, 2016

Yesterday, during a press conference in Iowa, Hillary Clinton told the press that the FBI needs to be more open about the information it has obtained in the reopened investigation into her emails.

Clinton is quoted as saying, “The first we knew about it, is I assume, when you knew about it; when this letter sent to Republican members of the House was released. So we don’t know the facts which is why we are calling on the FBI to release all the information that it has.”

The investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was reopened after the FBI located information on one of former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s electronic devices.

Anthony Weiner is the husband of Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin. Abedin and Weiner separated after pictures were released of Weiner lying in his underwear, next to he and Abedin’s toddler son, while he was sexting one of his vixens.

After Abedin and Weiner separated, it was reported that Weiner had sexted an under-age girl.

The report resulted in a state and federal investigation. Although Comey hasn’t confirmed whether the agency’s investigation into Weiner is related to Clinton’s emails, Abedin’s role as Clinton’s top aide is leading some to believe that the two investigations are related.

Comey did say that the emails were important to the FBI’s investigation, but he didn’t say whether the emails are important enough for them to move forward with referring charges against Clinton to the Department of Justice.

It must be noted that in July of this year Attorney General Loretta Lynch agreed with FBI Director James Comey that no charges should be filed against the former secretary of state.

The questions about Clinton’s use of her personal email server to conduct State Department business has resulted in voters not seeing her as honest and trustworthy.

According to a recent Fox News poll, 68% of voters say that she isn’t honest and trustworthy compared to 29% of voters who say she is honest and trustworthy.

Clinton was asked if she believes the new information about her emails will result in voters not voting for her.

She responded, “-people, a long time ago, made up their minds about the emails. I think that’s factored in to what people think and now they’re choosing a president.”

Based on the recent Fox News poll, Hillary Clinton continues to rank higher than Donald Trump on the commander-in-chief, terrorism, and national security questions while Trump wins on the question of who’ll fix the economy.
